Sharing a little packing inspiration today for our upcoming beach trip! Some things I like to keep in mind when packing are as follows--

1. Pack Light
Since you'll most likely be spending most of your time on the beach, there's no reason to bring complete separate outfits for every single day. A pair of shorts, a couple tops + a few dresses to throw on over your swimsuit should do the trick!

2. Suit Up
If you're going to the beach for more than 3 days, I highly recommend bringing more than one suit so you can give it a break from the salt water in between. If you wear two piece swimsuits, make the most of them by wearing tops and bottoms that can mix and match, so you have 4 options instead of just 2!

3. Tie The Knot
The best tops for beach trips are, in my opinion, a silky button down. They're light and airy, look adorable thrown over a swimsuit with some shorts, not to mention they're perfect to cover your shoulders during the hottest point of the day. They pack well + don't wrinkle. A knotted white button down is the epitome of beach-chic. And especially if you're going minimal on clothing, they can be worn on their own or tied over a dress to create a new look. Versatility, I'm allll about you.  

I hope this was a help to anyone else traveling soon!
